Sanyo Canada announced today that it is now shipping five new dual HD cameras, cameras that record video and photos, to Canadian retailers.

All five models feature face detection and image stabilization technologies as well as the ability to record in 1920 x 1080 HD video, and between 8 and 14 megapixel still image capability.

Additional features include face detection autofocus, image stabilization techology and the ability to record to SD and SDHC flash memory cards.

The five new Sanyo models include:
  • VPC-CS1 - 8 megapixel stills, 10X zoom, a 2.7 inch LCD screen and iFrame compatibility. Priced at $439.
  • VPC-SH1 - 10 megapixel stills, 30X zoom, 2.7 inch LCD, and iFrame compatibility. Priced at $549.

Both the VPC-CS1 and VPC-SH1 feature a new "Sound Zoom" function which Sanyo claims can help focus the sound recording on a specific subject being zoomed on, or clear channel separation to record the ambient environment being filmed in.

  • VPC-CG102 - 14 megapixel stills, 5X optical zoom with a 12X Double Range zoom, 2.7 inch LCD, HDMI mini terminal and is compatible with Eye-Fi wireless SD memory card. Priced at $329.
